Vocal Training · In studio

Katie is one of the most talented and passionate instructors that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I was trained by her from the start of middle school and throughout most of my high school singing career, and improved greatly under her careful instruction and guidance. Katie is so skilled at finding ways to hone individual voices and make them strong and sound, and she will always find that exact musical piece that will perfectly compliment your vocal range. She is very knowledgeable in various genres of music, and I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who is looking to improve their voice--even if this is just a hobby, Katie will match your enthusiasm note for note!
